Re: “Burlington Cop Resigns After Perjury Allegation in Drug Case

I trust Chief Del Pozo to uphold the highest standards for himself and the members of the BPD.
I believe he is doing his best to be transparent and to engage the community in a process whose outcome is to continuously improve his departments performance.

There are instances where police officers have to make rapid decisions in order to protect their lives and the lives of innocent citizens - it's easy to second guess their actions not knowing all the details of the situation and the facts. In several of the cases mentioned if certain info had been disclosed to the public it could have jeaprodized the prosecution of the case.

I'm not saying there aren't police officers who break the law or act to attempt to cover up their actions- what I am saying is that I trust Chief Del Pozo to continuously monitor the actions of his Department,hold officers accountable for their actions, and inform the public if/when that disclosure wouldn't jeaprodize an ongoing investigation.

If you don't have children, never get sick, and don't grow old - you'll be fine under Trump

Re: “Winooski Plans Push for ‘Sanctuary City’ Designation

I don't believe the safety and security of Vermont immigrants are solely the responsibility of Burlington or Winooski and I don't think the residents of these communities should bear the entire financial burden if/when Federal funds a withheld.

I am hoping there is a mechanism developed by the VT Legislature where people,myself included, are able to donate to a fund that would support any city in Vermont willing to become a sanctuary city.

Re: “Opinion: The Donald Brings a Wild Trumpus to Burlington

It might be helpful to figure out the cost to Burlington taxpayers for the additional police presence at this event- unless State Police are also there for support and then we are all paying for this circus.I have no problem with Trump exercising his Constitutional freedoms, however, I have a huge problem with Trump intentionally encouraging 18,00 people to show up knowing full well the chaos and cost that will be borne by the people of Burlington.What a waste of precious resources.
